Application Notes
This M3/38 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse PECs (thioglycollated elicied peritioneal cells). This can be used at less than or equal to 0.25 ug per test. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5to 10^8cells/test.

The M3/38 antibody reacts with mouse Galectin-3 (Mac-2). Galectins are a family of animal lectins which appear to exhibit a variety of biological functions. Galectin 3 (aka LGALS3, galactose-specific soluble lectin 3, Mac-2, L-29) is one of the more extensively studied members of this family and is a 30 kDa beta-galactoside-binding protein. Due to a C-terminal carbohydrate binding site, Galectin 3 is capable of binding IgE and mammalian cell surfaces only when homodimerized or homo-oligomerized. Galectin 3 is normally distributed in epithelia of many organs and various inflammatory cells, including macrophages, as well as dendritic cells and Kupffer cells. The expression of this lectin is up-regulated during inflammation, cell proliferation, cell differentiation and through trans-activation by viral proteins. This monoclonal antibody M3/38 crossreacts to human Galectin-3 (LGALS3).
